Nice
Are C or ASM coding planned?
I guess for non UK residents the shipping costs could be high.

Initially we will send them internationally at the lowest price we can but if we get a good amount of users in a country we can then consider printing it locally to reduce cost and postage time ;)

My order placed, too (although it seems superfluous to describe themselves as Britain's "best-selling" Amiga magazine, since they are the country's only Amiga magazine!).

They only ship in U.K. OR overseas, not to mainland Europe? ???

No payment method given before entering all kinds of personal informations AND one has to work for Google without getting paid for the effort??

I'm guessing that "seas" includes the Channel - although of course it's more likely to go "underseas" than "overseas" there.

one has to work for Google without getting paid for the effort??
What does Google have to do with it - except of course what Google already has to do with more or less everything you do on the net already?

Best regards,

Niels

Well, if i have to solve puzzles for Google because their ML software is incapable at least i want some coins for it. I don't care what excuses they pretend what this is really for, they want human brains, just like zombies.

Referring to the mag as ‘Britain’s best selling amiga mag’ It’s just intended as a bit of humour. Thanks for ordering  @SteveH

@TribbleSmasher I am not sure what you are on about?

Pre-ordered.

@TribbleSmasher

I to are completely confused by your comments. UK is an Island, we are surrounded by sea all around. So anything shipping from there is classed as "overseas", as it has to go over the sea to get to the rest of the world (unless they use euro tunnel, but same thing).

Sorry. I've never heard the term 'overseas shipping to Europe' while it's basically just a hop... ;)

Indeed - delighted to say that my copy arrived in the post this morning. It looks very slick and professional, so I am off to read it over a cup of coffee  :)

Wow, what a cool magazine! :) It arrived in my mailbox the other day and was a great read all the way. Love that the editors shows passion and enthusiasm for the Amiga in their texts! I'll definitely buy issue 2 or perhaps a subscription. ;)
